    Very cool, Matt. Do you have a parts list and a schematic for this? I'd love to build one.

    I see it now.  Love the new standardized format...  Thanks Clint!

    Wow, very cool indeed! I look forward to building one!

    What did you use as your oscilloscope (to make the picture scope[2].png)?

    @Ben C: I have a slightly older GW Instek GDS-1022 oscilloscope (and I just added some annotations to the screen shot from my computer).  At this point it's probably better to get the Rigol DS1052E, which is in a similar price range with some additional features.

    The #WINNING hashtag in your sample code implies that you believe more alcohol in your bloodstream is better, and that you are envisaging some kind of drunken tweet-off as to who can drink themselves to a certain level.

    Don't you think that's rather childish (not to mention irresponsible)?

    The previous post implies a poster who is not familiar with Charlie Sheen and his antics.

    @piers7: As commenter Orlando mentioned it's a reference to Charlie Sheen's Twitter antics and obviously not meant as any sort of a "goal."  While Charlie may think he's winning, the rest of us can take a more practical and accurate view of the situation  Smiley

    Just what I always wanted, a reason for the state police to follow me on twitter. Now if I can just get my phone to automatically tweet my location and velocity...

    Hi chris,

    Just what I always wanted, a reason for the state police to follow me on twitter. Now if I can just get my phone to automatically tweet my location and velocity...

    You could add a GPS sensor to the tweeting breathalyzer using the serial interface on digital pins 0 and 1 (or send GPS coordinates from your Windows Phone to your Netduino).  You could even log readings to a MicroSD card if you wanted to create a convenient location/velocity/sobriety history.

    [That is of course all in jest--although it could make for a cool remix of this project.]

    This is an awesome project. I didn't see the usual legal statement about the use of this device for performing actual alcohol sensing of humans.
    This is an example of a great device to solve a social need.

    I find it an brilliant invention, but the fact that it tweets your alcohol level, it's only designed for those teenagers who still find pride in getting floored. It would make it way cooler if it were just for personal view.
